Official Announcement will be coming soon, but until then...

@tompelissero

I'm told John Sullivan is a Pro Bowl alternate, passed over for Max Unger and ... Jeff Saturday. What a complete joke. Best center in NFC.

I'm told #Vikings LB Chad Greenway, the NFL's (unofficial) leading tackler, is a Pro Bowl alternate.

Pro Bowl nod for @BlairWalsh3 would be well-deserved. RT @JasonLaCanfora: sorry, Blair Walsh made it as well. so two rookies total.

UPDATE
@TomPelissero
From what I've been told, sounds like #Vikings Pro Bowl picks are Blair Walsh, Jerome Felton, Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen.

Made It
K - Blair Walsh
FB - Jerome Felton
HB - Adrian Peterson
DE - Jared Allen

Alternate
C - John Sullivan
LB - Chad Greenway

Saturday making the pro bowl is a joke... hopefully he backs out and Sullivan, a better candidate, is allowed in.

Okung and Williams have been good this year, so I cant complain. Staley though, I heard he hasnt been that good this year.

Agreed, how does a player go from being benched to being named a pro bowler. Especially over a player like Sullivan who has been phenomenal the past two years.

Laughing I agree. Allen doesn't deserve it this year either. Just goes to show that those that want the pro bowl dead are right. Too many reputation picks.

Allen is far more deserving of it than Saturday, in terms of 4-3 DEs, who was more deserving? Allen has had a down year relative to last year, but lets not forget that he did put up 22 sacks last season.

Again, last year. Someone definitely deserved Saturdays spot, but someone also deserved Allen's, heck I could find 15 others that got the nod that probably shouldn't have. Not sure why we are surprised about this though. Laughing Same schit different year.

Agreed, there are always a few selections that are completely mind boggling. In Allen's case, he didnt have a dominate year but you have to look at his counterparts in the NFC at 4-3 DE. A lot of players had down years at the 4-3 DE position.

Id probably have put Kalil over Staley as well.

I don't know if Allen deserved the Pro Bowl but he has 10 sacks and that's normally considered a solid season.
